Welcome to Torres High School Library. Our beautiful library is a great place to look for books, study or connect with friends. We are developing a great collection of bestselling books for teens and young adults. We also have a growing collection of eBooks and digital non-fiction and research resources. I’ve been a high school teacher, a middle school librarian and worn a host of other hats which allow me to help students find books that will spark their curiosity and interests. I’m excited to share this wonderful space with our Toro family!
